A Retro platinum ring with aquamarine, diamonds, and rubies. The ring has a rectangular-cut aquamarine with an approximate weight of 16.10 carats, 8 baguette diamonds with an approximate total weight of .80 carat, 28 round diamonds with an approximate total weight of .80 carat, and 8 calibre rubies with an approximate total weight of .44 carat. The jewelry historian Neil Letson coined the term "Retro" to describe the bold and vibrant jewelry of the period that ran from the late 1930s through 1950, which diverged in style from the earlier Art Deco period of the 1920's and 30's. The jewelry of the period is characterized by the bold, oversized and three dimensional use of precious metals. Retro jewels often feature massive, emerald-cut aquamarines, citrines and amethyst, accented with smaller rubies, sapphires and diamonds. Retro bracelets, watches and necklaces reflected the glamour and enchantment that Hollywood inspired during times of crisis. The movies provided a wartime escape into a world of fantasy and romance that was "larger than life".Ring size 7-1/4; this ring can be sized.

The pendant has 2 emerald-cut emeralds and 44 calibré-cut emeralds with an approximate total weight of 7.70 carats. The pendant is detachable from the twisted design and barrel-shaped links of the necklace. Henri Picq's workshop, located in the Marais district of Paris, was one of the most important workshops in Paris in the early 20th-Century through the late 1920's. He produced some of the highest quality gem-set platinum jewels of the period. Among other houses, Picq worked for Cartier, becoming their main supplier between 1900-1918. These jewels were said to be the finest in Paris, and it was the workshop of Henri Picq that became famed for the quality of this jewelry. Picq was instrumental in the use of novel materials and executed some of Cartier's most avant-gard designs, especially the beautifully produced Cartier 'Tutti Frutti' jewels, described at the time as 'pierres de couleur' and which continue to endure. He also produced a bracelet designed and exhibited at the revolutionary Paris Exposition Universelle in 1925.

All three stones are bezel set in the flexible sectioned bangle.As Mascetti and Triossi note in Bulgari, "...cabochons successfully render the volume or "cupola" effect of the jewel, which is further enhanced by their setting. These are never spiky claws bu rounded and smooth collets which enhance the overall rounded shapes of the design."
